Staffordshire School's FA, like most school's football organisations is run by a willing band of volunteers. Most have been involved in the game all of their lives and are putting back something to a game which has given them huge pleasure over the years. The age profile of the volunteers is towards the upper end of the spectrum and with that in mind we are always on the lookout for anyone who can contribute in any way.As funding from the ESFA and FA has been cut to the bone more than ever is the need for support to help keep Staffordshire SFA as a vibrant well run organisation.

Referees and assistants are always welcome. We currently have an excellent group of volunteer referees who take games for us without a fee, recognising that everyone who is at a game and those who have organised it do so for free as volunteers, and they are happy with out of pocket expenses. To a man they all agree that County football is the most disciplined football that they officiate. They enjoy the fact that the standard of play is very high but more importantly they are not hit with abuse from players or parents as we do not tolerate either from players ar parents. In the past ten years there has only been one player from Staffordshire dismissed from the field of play, something we are proud of and which we will endeavour to maintain.

If you are a referee or know of a referee who might like to join our team then please make contact through the website, you will be made more than welcome.

The draws for next seasons competitions have been made for all of the secondary competitions. The primary competition draws will be published in September. The entries have been good but there are still in excess of 30% of secondary or middle schools who do not enter their County Cup competitions which seems a great pity as the experience of playing new schools from different parts of the County is usually very positive.

The play by dates have also been published and other parts of the website will be updated as the information comes to hand.

He and several others are giving up their holidays for the challenge in aid of raising funds for research into prostate cancer.

Three trials took place last night, the Under 14 Boys (half of the cohort ) at Stafford Town FC where the standard was excellent. The coaches will not be announcing those selected for the final trial in September until they have seen the rest of the boys next Monday.

The Under 15 Boys trial was held at Brocton FC where the pitches were their usual pristine self and the club gave everyone a warm welcome as it had been some time since we last availed ourselves of the excellent facilities. 15 boys from last weeks trial were joined by the members of last years championship winning side and manager Neil Davies was staggered at the quality of players on display. He and the coaches are still agonising over final selection but and quote'we are bound to have missed someone and made some errors but the final squad will have been selected based on our honest opinion and finding a balanced squad. We thank all who have trialled and if you have missed out come back and prove us wrong next year'.

The big disappointment of the night was the Under 16 Boys trials. 62 boys were expected and extra coaches were brought in to help but just over a third of that number turned up. Only one person had the good manners to inform the organisers that their son would not be attending due to injury. The manager has selcted the following boys to join last years squad at Brocton on Friday `12 th July with a 6-00pm start, for the final trial.

Morley, Joe - Cardinal Griffin
Cooper, Jenson - De Ferrers
Summerfield, Keilan - Walton HS
Bracegirdle, Toby - Biddulph
Scriven, Joseph - Codsall
Pelnans, Louis Codsall
Bristow, Jack - Walton HS
Hornby, Charlie
